The Squadhelp Domain Marketplace allows you to sell your names to potential customers. Read more about how it works here.
These Terms and Conditions apply to You (the seller) and Squadhelp.
General Terms & Conditions
Squadhelp reserves the right to approve or deny your Marketplace submissions.
Until the Domain Transfer is complete, the customers have the ability to cancel their purchase. In that case, the customer's payment will be refunded and you will not receive any compensation. The domain name will be re-listed for sale in the Marketplace.
As long as the domain has not been sold to a customer, you are allowed to submit that name in other contests hosted on Squadhelp.com
Your account must be active and in good standing at the time of domain sale in order for you to receive the compensation.
Squadhelp may design Logos or custom images to promote some of your domains in our Marketplace. Any such Logos or custom images are exclusive property of Squadhelp and can not be reproduced or displayed on third party websites without written permission of Squadhelp.
Commission Structure & Pricing
For Premium Listings, the typical commission charged by Squadhelp ranges from 15% to 30%, depending upon the final selling price. Check this page for more details on Commissions and other Benefits.
For Standard Listings, sellers pay a fixed commission of 7.5%. Sellers can also opt for additional marketing exposure on Standard listings for increased commission, or a small upfront fee.
For Ultra Premium Domains, there is a 15% standard commission, however, a custom commission may be set for some ultra premium domains, which will be communicated with the seller upfront. The listing will be published upon acceptance of the commission by the seller.
For Squadhelp-Registered Domains, the typical commission offered to sellers is 25% of the selling price (during the first year). In the case of Squadhelp-registered domains, Squadhelp pays for the domain registration and ongoing domain renewal fees.
Your final commission will be based upon the actual selling price of the domain. The commission will be deposited to your account after the domain has been successfully transferred to the buyer. For example, if the commission rule is SH Receives 30% and the domain sells for $3000, you will receive $2100 Net proceeds after it is transferred to the buyer.
In addition to our commission structure, Squadhelp has recently announced our Revenue Generating Landing Pages. With this feature, you can earn referral commission by pointing your domains to SH.
Read more about this feature in our in depth help article.
Submitting marketplace domains into contests
You may submit your Premium Domains to contests that allow such submissions. You may also submit Standard Listings to contests if they have the Marketing Exposure enabled.
If the marketplace domain is purchased by the contest holder , you will receive the greater of the contest award amount or the domain payout (minus SH commission) as per the selling price of the domain.
Squadhelp Registered Domains - Terms & Conditions
Squadhelp allows the ability for sellers to submit unregistered domain ideas and have Squadhelp pay for the domain registration fees as well as ongoing renewals. If your Marketplace submission is accepted, Squadhelp will deduct 100 points from your account.
Squadhelp will register the domain name for your entry and as a result will be the owner of record for that domain name. Therefore, you will no longer have the ability to list that domain for sale in other marketplaces (outside Squadhelp.com platform).
Renewals: Squadhelp will register the domain for a duration of 1 year. At the end of the year, Squadhelp may pay for the domain renewals in lieu of reduced seller commissions. If you wish to keep the original seller commission, you will have the ability to pay a fee of $10 (or $5 plus 500 points) to extend the listing in the SH Domain Marketplace for another year. Please note that these commission rules can be different for different domains (based upon several factors) and you will be able to see the exact rule before deciding on a renewal option.
Squadhelp will not be able to transfer the domain ownership back to you under any circumstance.
Squadhelp has complete control & discretion over setting a selling price and discounts for Squadhelp owned domains. Based upon market factors, SH may decide to increase or decrease the price of these domains at any time.
Seller Owned Domains Terms & Conditions (Premium Listings)
If your listing is approved, you would need to point your domains to the Squadhelp Name Servers (i.e. these domains will be listed exclusively on SH)
In case of Seller owned domains, you have the option to submit domains with or without Squadhelp coins. You receive additional benefits with SH coins such as faster review times, partial exclusivity and better commission rates. However if your domains are not approved, the coins are not refundable.
In case of Seller Owned domains, SH has limited control on lowering the selling price or offering a discount once the listing has been approved by seller. SH will not reduce the approved selling price by more than $200 (unless that reduction is explicitly approved by the seller.
You can remove your listing at any time by giving us a 7 day notice as long as the domain is not authorized for listing outside Squadhelp via our partial exclusivity option. If the domain is listed for sale outside Squadhelp platform, you must give a 30 day notice to remove the domain.
If the domain received an offer or inquiry within last 30 days, you must wait 30 days before requesting a removal of the listing.
Excessive or Frequent removal of listings will likely reduce your ability to submit domains in future because SH makes upfront investment in creating logos and promoting the domains.
Squadhelp may notify you regarding any offers or inquiries received on the domain. You are under no obligation to accept an offer below the BIN price. Raising the BIN price immediately after an inquiry or offer is received is not allowed. If you raise the BIN price within 7 days of receiving an inquiry or offer, you must notify the SH team and provide at least 72 hours window to allow the buyer to complete the purchase at the original BIN price.
If you remove the listing, you do not own any rights to the logo created by the SH team.
Selling any of your premium listings outside SH platform while your listing is active at SH is a direct violation of our Terms of Service.
Seller Owned Domains Terms & Conditions (Standard Listings)
You are not required to point your Standard Listings to Squadhelp Name Servers but you must verify the ownership of the domains (either by adding Name Servers or TXT records)
You have full flexibility on setting pricing for Standard Listings
Standard Listings do not require any exclusivity. You are allowed to list Standard Listings on any other platforms
If you no longer own the Standard Listing, or if it sells outside SH platform, you must delist the domain from your Squadhelp account to ensure it is no longer offered for sale.
